Metal Skin Panic Madox-01


What a sorry sight.

You have just witnessed the obliteration

of an elite U.S. Army tank force...

...a mere three minutes after being

engaged in the city's streets... the Slave Trooper 01.

Also known as the MADOX-01, its localized

combat capability is overwhelming.

The device is also more resistant to NBC

weaponry than a main battle tank.

Nuclear Biological Chemical)

Furthermore, it can be deployed from

a UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter.

Its utility for anti-terrorist and anti-

guerrilla operations is self-evident.

Now, allow me to introduce the driver of

the MADOX, who just performed this...

...dangerous exercise with these remote

simulator tanks... Miss Kusumoto.

Miss Kusumoto is also in charge of soft-

ware development for this "Tankbuster."

In order to demonstrate the

versatility of the MADOX...

...she personally volunteered to be the

driver today, despite being a woman.

Unit #1 goes to Ichigaya tonight. We're

in a hurry, so deliver it as-is.

Unit #2 needs to be overhauled.

Get started quickly.

And then...

Miss Kusumoto... humiliated me

brilliantly today.

Lt. Kilgore, you fought admirably

in today's action...

...but you just can't beat the

MADOX in street warfare.

I didn't come to talk about that. I

have only one thing to tell you:

I'll get even for today.

I swear it.

Not with you... with

that wind-up toy.

Remember this... next time, it won't

be a remote-control game.

Hey! This is terrible!

What is it?

Over there!

Holy Cow!

Hey, that's an E-2C Hawkeye!

It's flying pretty low...

Kouji... Sorry to bother

you, but...

Have you got something


Daydreaming again, aren't you? Must

be nice to work part-time.

Never mind that!

What is it?

What's this?

I have no idea. All of a sudden

it was here in the truck.

It wasn't here when

I loaded up.

Say, what do you

think it is?

Kouji... aren't you an

engineering major?

Okawasaki Heavy lndustry...

U.S. Army...

Onose, I'll take charge of this!

Huh? But... Well, then, what is it?

It has "MADOX" written

on it, right?

It's just a piece of junk

someone threw away.

-I'm telling you, don't worry about it.

-Uh, but...

I treat you to ramen all the time, don't I?


"Onose Motors"

This is absolutely unthinkable!

How could an SDF transport...

Self-Defense Force; Japan's military)

...lose top-secret cargo in such

a stupid traffic accident?

Er... The report said that

it was an unavoidable...

You're being naive. It was

terrorism, of course.

You people don't know the

Eastern Bloc's methods.

Hey, if the Eastern Bloc

does get hold of it...

...we'll expect you to reimburse us for the

enormous development expenses we've incurred... per our contract...

Mr. Okawasaki! You, too, should

watch what you say!

Another viewpoint is that this accident

was one of your publicity stunts!

Wh...What are you saying?

We're the victims!

In any case, this couldn't

come at a worse time.

We were just about to go into

field-testing! It's terrible!

Really, they're missing the point!

It's been fourteen hours

since the accident...

...and yet the top brass

are still in a panic.

The actual loss aside, I'm to blame for leaving

it in scramble mode while it was being moved.

I'll bring it down if it

starts operating.

The Army's already trying to recover it.

It's best that you leave it to us.

Besides, MADOX-02 is being

overhauled right now.

Any new movements?

No. There's still nothing from

the SDF search troops.

We're having trouble tracking down

vehicles that were at the scene.

And we can't very well ask the Police

for assistance, now, can we?

We're preparing for the worst,

and forming a recovery unit.

-Did you say "a recovery unit?"

-That's me.

-Lt. Kilgore?


But after all, I'm the only one who's

fought against the MADOX...

That's too dangerous.

There's nothing to worry about.

Our objective is recovery.

I won't break it.

You still don't understand, do you?

It's you I'm worrying about!

Awfully sure of yourself,

aren't you...

Well, fine. I've got

a trump card too.

Lt. Kilgore is a dangerous man, but he's

the best tank driver in the Army.

He was born into the

wrong era, I fear.

Say, will this be all right? It won't

drop through the floor, will it?

Well, this apartment was built a long time ago...

Don't scare me like that!

It looks all right now...

Hey, what's this photo, Kouji? Didn't

you say you broke up with Shiori?

Hey, you, cut that out!

Give that back!

Man... Shiori is too

pretty for words.

When she goes off to

study in England...

...every guy in Japan is

going to be miserable!

How do you know about that?

Eh? Oh, didn't I tell you?

She called this morning and asked

me to give you a message.

Why didn't you tell

me sooner?

Now you're crying over spilled milk!

Didn't you break up with her?

Just tell me what

she said!

She said, "I'll be waiting on

the observation floor..."

"...of the NSR Building in West

Shinjuku, at 8.:
00 tonight."

Say, Kouji, you've been saying

that you were breaking up...

...but isn't it ultimately

up to you?

Shiori thinks...

Uh, never mind... Sorry... Well,

I still have work to do...

...but tell me if you find anything

interesting in there, okay?

Well, so long!

Now, then...

A manual...

"The Slave Trooper MADOX-01."

What is this?

I see...


To get inside... the Open Switch.

This is hot! I get excited

just looking at it.

I'm amazed that something

like this already exists.

Ah... The joints get locked when

the power unit is turned off.

I wonder if it has an escape

mechanism of some kind...

Maybe I can even

make it move!

I don't get this...

Oh... okay! It can adjust

to your body size.

Let's see...

About this much?

Feels just like wearing

ski boots!

What now? How do l

get out of this thing?

Wh...Wh...What the...?!

Stop! Hold it, stupid!

I...I'm not ready yet!


What's happening?

-We've got the MADOX's activation signal.


Tokyo! Nakano district!

So, it's moved.

It's heading toward


This is a disaster.

It won't stop!

W...Where's the

brake?! Here!

L...Looks like I've stopped.

Uh... Excuse me...?

Huh? Ah, yes! I'll

take this, please!

Can you warm it up

in the microwave?

Damn it! Come on, shrimp!

That's it... a little... more!

Honestly, this is like feeding myself

with someone else's hands!

Still, this is really


This thing just sucks me in, and l

can't figure out how to get out!

The NSR Building at

00, wasn't it?


"Foreign-exchange study?"

"In England. For three years."

"What are we gonna

do for three years?"

"That's why I want to

talk to you about it."

"Talk? What's there

to talk about?"

"My father is making

me go."

"So that's how it is, huh? It's

not hard to figure it out."

"I'm just a poor student who has

to work for a living, after all..."

"So when are you leaving?"

"This Sunday. "

"That's only four days
